Manuel and Alexis analyse Borussia Mönchengladbach’s performances in the month of March, a true mensis horribilis. Does the win against Schalke 04 mean light at the end of the tunnel? Can Marco Rose go on? There has definitely been a shift in opinion regarding our future ex-manager succumbing to the Forces of Evil. In our Legendary Goals section, a tribute to one of Borussia’s greats, Lothar Matthäus, a player who always gave everything for his team and recently celebrated his 60th birthday.
For this podcast’s title, it’s back to literature for the quote.

A dominant Borussia is held 2-1 by Schalke at Veltins Arena, in a match that some pundits afterwards described as “slapstick”. 22 shots on target, some clear-cut chances missed or denied by Schalke’s outstanding keeper Ralf Fährmann, and Schalke bags two goals through an own goal by Martin Hinteregger and a deflected shot off Granit Xhaka’s shoulder. Unbelievable. The team must not let their heads down, however, as this was still a very stong team performance, completely outplaying one of the biggest clubs in the League on their own ground. After the Easter Bundesliga break, it’s another big match for Europe when high-flying Hertha Berlin is coming to Borussia-Park on Sunday.
